If the discs are glazed, just go over them with some sandpaper.

Car and Motorbike trick to stop this is, is a dab of copper slip on the back of the pads. This dampens the vibration which is the squealing you are hearing. Make sure it is on the back and not the BRAKING SURFACE.

Should never use Copper Slip on Hope brakes as it is not good for the phenolic pistons.

See here.

There is also a guide over on PinkBike.

I'll have to wip the rotors off and deglaze them, they must be what causing the issue :?
